HEAVY rains are pounding Bulawayo and parts of Matabeleland North and South provinces, breaking the dry spell that had dominated most parts of the Southern region in the last two months.

The persistent downpour covered areas surrounding the city and other districts.

The Meteorological Services Department has forecast that wet weather conditions are expected to persist in all parts of the country.

The coming of the rains is also expected to result in significant inflows into the Bulawayo water supply dams and ease the biting water shortages.

Meanwhile, the city's chief fire officer Mr Richard Peterson said the fire brigade was on high alert to assist residents in the event of an emergency.

He warned residents to desist from crossing flooded streams as they risk drowning.
